Tyler McNaneyFounder & Dreamer
Tyler grew up in Vermont and has been tinkering his whole life. He first went to Vermont Technical College in 2011 but dropped out to pursue the Filabot. After successfully funding the Filabot on Kickstarter he’s invented, refined and run the business ever since. Tyler can be seen in the office, at the warehouse doing everything from running marketing meetings to helping design the latest products using CAD software. When he isn’t working, Tyler enjoys long walks and spending time with his family in Northern Vermont. When he isn’t doing that, he’s inventing more things, building more projects and having a great time doing it all.
